Advantages of a Wheel Net System
With conventional tie-down straps, you attach to the chassis and draw down to generate sufficient compression in the shocks to hold the vehicle in place. This constant load on the suspension, coupled with loads experienced during transit, can elevate the risk of blowing a shock seal. And a change in compression could lead to slack, which can increase the load spikes, unduely stressing the strap material.
Mac’s ATV Wheel Nets avoid these complications by locking the tires in place. By affixing the tires, the ATV’s suspension is allowed to operate as designed, absorbing the shocks of the road. And isolated from the chassis movement, the wheel nets maintain their tension as well at the end of the road as when you started.
ATV owners sometimes choose to swap out their OEM tires for larger aftermarket sizes, at a later date. Our Adjustable ATV Wheel Net includes an adjustable leg, so if you do change tire size you can use the same wheel nets. With a simple adjustment, this pack will fit a wide range of tires
Adjustable Leg of Wheel Net Accommodates Changing Tire Size
Each Mac’s ATV Wheel Net is designed to a 2,800lb Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS), giving you plenty of safety margin for even the heaviest ATV. Macs uses the highest quality strap material available, significantly improving chafing and UV resistance over “standard” straps. We then fabricate our wheel net with the highest stitch count in the industry.
Mac’s ratchets are well known for how easily they operate, every time. Our unique design resists the binding that can occur on other ratchets from dirt or racking.
Flat Snap Hook Attachment Style
- The Flat Snap Hook system consists of captive hooks at each end. The advantage of these standard hook ends is that they can be used with most anchor points (e.g., D Rings) or track system (e.g., VersaTie, E Track, etc), provided the hard points and fittings support the load requirement.
This is a good choice if you already have standard tie-down points on your deck, especially if your hardpoints are on the perimeter of the trailer.
When you’ve arrived, store your wheel nets in the included Mac’s Large Tool Bag. The tough canvas body of this bag is ready to handle your tie down hardware. The bag now includes a heavy duty, large-lug zipper that is easily grasped when wearing gloves.
An internal frame has been added to support the bag when it’s open, making the contents more accessible. The generous interior is large enough to hold a complete set of 2″ tie-downs, with room to spare.
The integral handles are made of black webbing that wraps around the bottom for better weight support and a hook-and-loop strap wraps around the handles to keep them together for easy transport.
An American Manufacturing Company
We carefully sew and assemble each tie-down strap in our Sandpoint, Idaho shop, allowing us to retain a level of quality that is often lost when manufacturing is outsourced. Plus, we feel good about creating American jobs!
